Gameweek Eighteen Preview: Graphical Aid

Happy Holidays everybody! We hope that your Christmas celebrations were brilliant, and for those not celebrating the day, we hope your day was just as grand. Boxing Day is here, and this is perhaps the greatest day of the Premier League season. All ten fixtures are being played from dawn to dusk. Starting in Stoke and ending in Southampton, it's going to be a long, draining, and perhaps pivotal day for football fans and Fantasy Premier League players. The Hype Team has been very busy over the festive period, and we've got all the Graphical Aid you can handle. We're back on the Fantasy Football Pundits providing analysis and insight around the state of Chelsea. We've covered a team with a rising stock on the 'Hype Train' - Crystal Palace, and as ever we've provided our Weekly Wildcards, the differentials that may make the difference. Enjoy!

Weekly Wildcards

Every week The Hype Train analyses the best wildcard options for your Fantasy Premier League teams. Historically weekly dream team’s comprise of mostly wildcard players whose selection falls under 5% of overall players, to which there is no doubt that their influence cannot be ignored. With such an abundance of points coming from the FPL’s hidden gems The Hype Train selects one player from each match in the upcoming gameweek to decide who could be the differential for your teams.

Are Crystal Palace Soaring Towards Europe?

Alan Pardew has been a catalyst for a club that last season was struggling to keep its head above water in the Premier League. Whilst Leicester are taking the plaudits for their work at the top of the table it is the Londoner's who are slowly creeping up the table and staking a claim for a European place. The Hype Train looks at some of the factors surrounding the club, and what they have, what they need to do, including their players, and a new investment that might just elevate this club into the stratosphere.

Fantasy Football Pundits: Chelsea Insight and Analysis

The nature of the Hype Train is to report on the teams and players on the ‘hype’ for the right reasons, and due to Chelsea throwing Jose Mourinho to the curb, we’re obliged to comment on Chelsea, a club famed with FPL success stories in the last two seasons. As it stands, writing this exclusive is against our nature as the Blues have not only fallen off their throne, they’ve drifted into oblivion. With a side worth millions on the cheques, and equally in the FPL, questions are piling up after a home victory over Sunderland. Are Chelsea going to get back into FPL form? Are they going to continue to suffer? It’s time to investigate.

The Hype Train writes for the Fantasy Football Pundits to analyse where Chelsea are, where they are going, and what they can offer for your fantasy teams.

Wishing Everyone Happy Holidays!
